Sometimes it takes time to fall in love

It was one of those grey dull days (like today basically), when I, mostly out of boredom and curiosity, entered the second hand store. They had a fantastic sale, where all the items were costing 3 £ or less, and there were quite few interesting ones. Not that I actually needed something, but I still tried on my favourites, among them a cotton girly dress with butterflies and this very fluffy coat.

I loved the dress and knew right away it's going home with me, but about coat I wasn't so sure. I guess we just didn't clicked, but after all it wasn't such a big investment, so I took it along as well. Especially since my winter outwear was pretty limited at the time.

First thing after arriving in new home was giving my new addition a good wash. I'm one of those terrible people who goes like ''colour blind'' and ''separating is for pussies'' when washing clothes and then wonder why things come out of machine all wrinkled and with colour stains... Once I even managed to wash a marker with the rest of stuff. 

So there was no great high hopes for this coat either, and my disappointment was at the fullest when it's adorable fluff turned into hardened bristles. But I'm a fighter and instead of giving up on my new coat, that basically turned into structure of a carpet, I thoroughly brushed it, bit by bit, until it was all beautiful and cosy again. Let's just skip the part of how I was sharing room with another 11 people at the time of this action and how the faux hair was everywhere.

There, it was set and ready for me to take it on the streets. Even if I had doubts about it at the first sight, they were soon gone, when people started throwing compliments at me about it.
And I remember after my seasons away, when I dragged it out of garage again and put it on, the sight in it made me go like ''damn, this looks glam!''. Well, as glam as a synthetic 3 £ carpet can look, but it does have it's uniqueness and charm. It's very light beige pink offers numerous styling options and often it's my first choice to grab when I need to get out in a hurry.

Super cosy and protective from cold. I've recently took it to Belfast with me, and there were several random people we encountered that made positive remark about it as well and made me feel like a really stylish and slightly important person.

I guess sometimes it takes time to fall in love as not every love can be love at first sight, but if so, once you do, you can really value it for so much more <3
